Cím:Parcul castelului Béldi din Jibou, județul Sălaj *** The Park of the Béldi Manor House in Jibou, Sălaj County
The article presents several landmarks in the history of the buildings and landscape design of the Béldi Manor House’s park in Jibou (Salaj County), which was designed along with the manor house’s construction, at the beginning of the 20th century, by interventions on a pre-existing oak forest. The park is listed on 2004s and 2010s List of Historic Buildings. The current image of the park, especially of the area close to the manor house’s building is largely due to several relatively recent interventions, carried out after 1990. On the other hand, the preexisting forest, although altered in order to make room for the manor house and its associated facilities, still contributes much to the image of the place. This article describes the main built and designed elements of the park, the relationships between them and their relationships with the settlement and the environment, as they were observed by the author in the summers of 2007 and 2014, in an essay to sketch a brief inventory of the park’s current layout.
